The idea for the print was an encounter with a pod of humpback whales in the Southern Ocean.  Surging past whales were streams of seabirds - Antarctic and Cape petrels, black-browed and light mantled sooty albatrosses, and a lone wandering albatross. Every now and then one of the humpbacks would breach exploding out of the ocean swell in a spray of energy.  That, and the passage of birds sweeping along on the power of the wind, created a profound sense of the elemental nature and richness of the Southern Ocean. 

A graphic response was a way to capture some of that excitement and a relief print would allow for bold and simple shapes and just a few limited interlocking colours to simply express an extraordinarily complex and exciting experience.
